Transforming spaces into inspiring coffee shop interiors

When it comes to design for hospitality we believe wholeheartedly that the focus should be on customer experience. When it comes to coffee shop design our expertise is built around understanding your brand vision and then shaping that into a coffee shop interior that is both functional and visually appealing too. 

There are now 8000+ coffee shops in the UK alone and over the last few years the industry has seen UK consumers spend billions of pounds on coffee year on year. Brand positioning is so important when it comes to introducing a new independent coffee shop brand to what is an already very crowded market. What we have seen though is that the businesses that invest in their brand and coffee shop interior design tend to have a stronger position in the market. As a result of this they generally outperform other competitors by approx +30%.

    Our Ambition


    "Amazing feedback from our customers"

    We were moving our retail space, the process was completely new to us and we didn’t know where to start. 

    After a number of meetings with Grey Coffee it was clear they had a real understanding of the challenges we may face and had a clear process and vision as to how they would guide our interior transformation. 

    Whilst like many we have suffered with the effects of a global pandemic we can’t wait for our customers to return to our amazing new retail space.

    Coffee Shop Design - How we can help you

    When it comes to undertaking a new coffee shop interior design project there are a number of things we need to consider. Firstly we need to understand your brand not just in terms of the look and feel but more so to understand your point of difference and who your ideal customer is. This really helps us to design a coffee shop interior and business that goes beyond just serving coffee. We want to create an experience that is distinctive and unique but more importantly memorable.

    We also have to remember that coffee shop interior design isn’t just about creating that ‘instagrammable’ moment, whilst we appreciate it is an aspect that needs consideration, the space also has to be functional.

    Throughout most coffee shop interior design projects there are some key elements that we would work and assist you with and these are as follows;

    Coffee shop branding; Coffee shop counter; Coffee shop layout; Coffee shop design ideas.

    Aligning each of these components and making them work together is what helps to shape a customer experience that is unique and memorable. The coffee shop interior design should play its role in shaping that experience and turn new customers into returning customers.
